Bengal Leads and a Opening Ceremony --> "ekti ingriji bhashon ebong ekti bangali mukhyomontri"

This post is unlike my other posts.
I'll strictly talk about an event here (and try to be imperative to what I feel about it).

Some of us have heard of an event called Bengal Leads in the past few days. It is a Govt. Of West Bengal initiative for a portrait of what our state has to offer to the the investors, both foreign and domestic.
According to it's own website
The Government of West Bengal is organising, for the first time an exhibition cum business summit - Bengal Leads 2012, where the State will exhibit its areas of strength and opportunities in varied sectors and facilitate interaction amongst all stakeholders.

The website looks nice and clean (-minus a few glitches and only 5 security vulnerabilities) unlike most of the Govt. sites I have visited. The Crowsnest have done a good job with the site, just didn't understand the unsymmetrical foter image background is a intentional effect or just carelessness.
You can visit the site here -->
As you can see it even starts with a welcome note from the CM so it is quite safe to assume she has quite a say in this matter and perhaps one of the initiators of this business summit.
Now without further ado I would like you to please see the below video which is her opening speech on the starting day (9th) and the purpose of this blog post.

Watch this video(be patient till the end please,I'm sure you'll enjoy it) and then please do comment your views :)
I'm sure you will have plenty to say :)


  1. What to say!!! I'm spellbound!!! :-P Mamata Di reminds me 'Kolaveri Di' by all means :-D ... "janar kono Sesh Nai, Janar Chesta Britha Tai" :P

  2. onake primary school er teacher kore pathiye de, ROLL CALL ta bhaloi korte paren, etukuo ki mathay budhdhi nei naki je bhalokore english bolte na parle ontoto ekjon dobhashi rekhe dewa uchit, bengal mockery show na korlei parten, singur er oi oto boro shilpo ta hote dilen na, labher gur narendra modi kheye gelo, erpor abar ei, onar manoshik shushthyota diye amar shongshoy achhe ... uni naki abar kolkata ke london banaben, age west bengal ke gujrat er dhare kachhe toh niye asun trpr toh london

Visualizing large scale Uber Movement Data

Last month one of my acquaintances in LinkedIn pointed me to a very interesting dataset. Uber's Movement Dataset. It was fascinating to explore their awesome GUI and to play with the data. However, their UI for exploring the dataset leaves much more to be desired, especially the fact that we always have to specify source and destination to get relevant data and can't play with the whole dataset. Another limitation also was, the dataset doesn't include any time component. Which immediately threw out a lot of things I wanted to explore. When I started looking out if there is another publicly available dataset, I found one at Kaggle. And then quite a few more at Kaggle. But none of them seemed official, and then I found one released by NYC - TLC which looked pretty official and I was hooked.
To explore the data I wanted to try out OmniSci. I recently saw a video of a talk at jupytercon by Randy Zwitch where he goes through a demo of exploring an NYC Cab dataset using OmniSci. A…

ARCore and Arkit: What is under the hood : Anchors and World Mapping (Part 1)

Reading Time: 7 MIn
Some of you know I have been recently experimenting a bit more with WebXR than a WebVR and when we talk about mobile Mixed Reality, ARkit and ARCore is something which plays a pivotal role to map and understand the environment inside our applications.
I am planning to write a series of blog posts on how you can start developing WebXR applications now and play with them starting with the basics and then going on to using different features of it. But before that, I planned to pen down this series of how actually the "world mapping" works in arcore and arkit. So that we have a better understanding of the Mixed Reality capabilities of the devices we will be working with.
Mapping: feature detection and anchors Creating apps that work seamlessly with arcore/kit requires a little bit of knowledge about the algorithms that work in the back and that involves knowing about Anchors. What are anchors: Anchors are your virtual markers in the real world. As a develope…

ARCore and Arkit, What is under the hood: SLAM (Part 2)

In our last blog post (part 1), we took a look at how algorithms detect keypoints in camera images. These form the basis of our world tracking and environment recognition. But for Mixed Reality, that alone is not enough. We have to be able to calculate the 3d position in the real world. It is often calculated by the spatial distance between itself and multiple keypoints. This is often called Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM). And this is what is responsible for all the world tracking we see in ARCore/ARKit.
What we will cover today:How ARCore and ARKit does it's SLAM/Visual Inertia OdometryCan we D.I.Y our own SLAM with reasonable accuracy to understand the process better Sensing the world: as a computerWhen we start any augmented reality application in mobile or elsewhere, the first thing it tries to do is to detect a plane. When you first start any MR app in ARKit, ARCore, the system doesn't know anything about the surroundings. It starts processing data from cam…
